Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Tehachapi~golden hills and wildflowers~That's My World 062111





Hubby and I just returned from a 9 day trip to the Sierra. We drove up the western side, up Highway 99 and went through Tehachapi. I can never remember how to spell it, so I always have to double check! Anyway, we saw these beautiful light purple wildflowers and I stopped to take some photos of them. Aren't the golden hills and flowers gorgeous? So different from our desert here near Palm Springs! While this isn't my world, it is one that I enjoy exploring! That's My World for Tuesday, June 21, 2011. I'll be documenting our trip all this next week, so please stop by for updates! To see other worlds, please visit: http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/

It would be perfect for *PicStory* this week: Flowers. So if you like...

The fields of flowers are beautiful. I remember a narrow winding road through Tehachapi.

I recently saw some purple flowers like these at an arboretum here in az. Gorgeous pops of color where you wouldn't expect.
